Life Lately: Getting Back Into My Artwork

For those of you who don’t know, I used to paint windows for a living. Since having children, running a business, and living life, I haven’t painted or done much artwork at all. Until….

Adding the phone was a last minute addition. My daughter came back to me asking for an “old-fashioned” phone. So we Google-ed pictures of “old-fashioned phones”.

The finished product! (clock, salt rock lamp – it even plugs in!, family portrait, computer screen, a flower in a vase, a collection of pens, a phone ringing off the hook, and a sign – “Shalom in the Home“……….but that’s a whole other post!

  1. Cute, artsy, and I think you should go for it! You might want to add something short and inspirational to a drawing each day…who knows what market you will find? Keep it non-religious–meaning no dogma or creed, but from the wise words of Scripture (Wisdom writings) what the Author/Creator meant/said. Just an off the top of my head thought…
